What is S3 bucket: understanding the term
Amazon platform doesn't have a familiar file system. There is no such thing as a file or directory. The data stored and received through S3 are called objects. Each object is located inside a so-called bucket (a fundamental concept in S3), meaning a container for storing any number of objects.
S3 bucket name must be unique throughout the Amazon S3 system because it is an identifier for external access to bucket objects. Only you can access buckets, or you can allow others to do it. With the help of object attributes, you can allow or deny access to other people who want to download or upload files to your buckets.
